    I remember as a Kid I had to go accross the street
    at the Legion & Get a Vaccination for School.
    Measels Maybe ? Whatever the Vaccine everyone had to take
    in the early 60's.

    Anyway after the vaccination, I Went accross the Street
    & Kids were Climbing all over the Plane.

    it is Gone Now. Gone to the Great Airplane Museum
    somewhere.

    Re: Tower City Memorial Park

    Nice finds Jeff, your aircraft in the pix looks like it might be a T-33 Shooting Star. I worked on those for 10 years up here in the Great White North, great little aircraft.

    The Legion does it on a regular Basis.

    I think the Word they use is
    flag "Retirement"

    Exactly. Acording to flag code, when it is faded excessively, torn beyond reasonable repair, or no longer properly represents the nation, it is retired. Officially, the stripes are removed and destroyed forst and the field is destroyed intact. We have a Boy/Girl Scout program here at JBLM that collects and respectfully retires old flags. I regularly see that they have hundreds to retire.

    I also agree that the aircraft is a T-33/P-80
    Keep Swinging...
